An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The Stoller surname comes from the Middle High German/Middle Low German word "stolle," meaning a "support" or "frame." As such, the name may have been an occupational name for a carpenter, or perhaps a nickname for a rigid person.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Stolle, Stol, Stoller, Stole, Stohl, Stolhe and many more.
First found in Switzerland, in the canton of Zurich, where the name Stolle was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches in Bavaria, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs.
